National Museum of Automats and Robots

Interesting
The Musée National de l'Automate is an astonishing museum-cum-show, and has some 3 000 pieces, including 1 000 robots. Such a place would never have existed without the Roullet-Decamps firm, which, through four generations of creators in the 19C-20C made a huge contribution to the field of automatons. The manufacturer's collection, acquired by the State, brings nearly two centuries of mechanical toys back to life.
